The Baslersch Chopf and the Sentisch Horn (2,827 m.a.s.l.) start off identically. Depending on the conditions and shape you can also choose the other summit. From the Tschuggen car park, the ascent begins along the pass road to the Wägerhus. Here you leave the road and go through a short steep slope to the big plain. Now continue uphill over the long plateau, keeping north-west and crossing the whole plain. Now it gets a little steeper. Via the Gulgerigen Furgga (2'571 m.a.s.l.) one reaches the summit of the Basler Chopf. The descent first follows the ascent route across the plain. Shortly before the Tällichopf (2'342 m.a.s.l.) one leaves the ascent route and can go down the slope directly to the pass road.


After the tour, the Gasthaus zum Tschuggen is an ideal place for reinforcements.


Anyone who goes off-piste acts exclusively on their own responsibility and is outside the liability area of the cable cars. The yellow marked freeride slopes are secured but not groomed and not controlled. They can only be used when they are open. We recommend checking the open slopes, the SLF avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast. All liability is excluded.

This freeride route is to be understood as a general indication of direction. Depending on the conditions, downhill routes must be judged and adjusted by yourself. No responsibility can be taken for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the information provided.

The practice of freeriding in the open terrain is at your own risk. Every freerider and tourer is strongly advised to prepare thoroughly, plan their routes and obtain up-to-date information on the snow and avalanche situation. Avalanche situation report and snow info:

All liability is declined for accidents resulting from the use of the published information and route details.

In case of doubt, accompaniment by experienced mountain guides is strongly recommended:  


We recommend the avalanche training centre before the start of a tour.

On the Jakobshorn near the Fuxägufer mountain station in Davos, the correct use of the avalanche transceiver (LVS) can be practised under realistic conditions. The training area consists of a 100 x 100m zone in moderately steep terrain, thus creating a realistic avalanche cone. Use of the training area is free of charge. You must bring your own avalanche transceiver and avalanche probe with you.
